All lanes are back open near exit 44 in Meridian after a semi-truck flipped over on its side. 

Justin Fieseler of Texas was driving west when he drifted to the right side of the highway and lost control. Fieseler was wearing his seatbelt but his passenger, Brian Bailey, was not. Both men were taken to St. Lukes Regional Medical Center in Meridian. 

The westbound lanes were blocked for three and a half hours, but are now fully open.
